Glenview Women's Club
2020-2021 President's Message

Hello Glenview Women’s Club Members:
We feel like it is an incredibly important time for our club to come together to address some very serious issues in our community as our club faces a new reality created by the Covid-19 pandemic and the Black Lives Matter social situation. 

As we all are well aware, there is unprecedented unemployment in our community creating increasing problems for the women we serve as they are disproportionately affected by both of these situations. Increased food insecurity and limited resources from donors and government assistance are going to grow the issues facing women this year, and we feel a calling to take arms and help with a renewed passion. 

 

We are excited to announce that we have created a cohesive board that is committed to working together toward supporting this endeavor. We are equipped and ready to help each other and the community we serve to get through these uncertain times with dignity, grace, teamwork, and a willingness to drive our mission forward with the force that locked arms are capable of.
